When I lived in New York, a
small community of immigrants was moved into
a suburban neighborhood "project".
Within a week, a significant numbers of

The police caught one family in the process
of skinning a house cat, and they did not
understand why they cited for a crime.
These foreigners thought that the
cute kitties and delicious pups were a wildlife
food source to be hunted and eaten, just
like American rural people hunt and eat Possum.
They had a good point, what is accepted in
one country is illegal in another. The

individual States, sovereign countries and

This same attitude exists
today, but instead of pets, we addressing
the issue of intellectual property theft and
Internet publisher responsibilities.
Support the SOPA Act!
IP laws are evolving, SOPA can be better
than filing endless DMCA requests that are
ignored by foreign countries. Foreign
countries have their own Internet laws,
which might, or might not, match USA law.
SOPA Act takes us back to truth, justice
and the American
way, a time when newspaper, book and
magazine publishers were legally responsible for
that they publish.
- In a nutshell, any web site or forum is a publisher, and like a
publisher, they are responsible for what they distribute, whether
they wrote it or not.
- Under the DMCA, when eBay helped burglars
sell stolen goods they used the DMCA to
claim that they are "just a venue",
immunized by DMCA Section 230.
- The SOPA law will aggressively go after
sites that violates American laws, including
extradition to the US, with long prison
terms for serious offenses (threatening,
stealing, identify theft).
I hear that the US Federal prisons
offers much better accommodations than the
Korean home, so we
may see a huge influx of SOPA criminals
enjoying themselves at Club Fed.

SOPA and Internet
I was recently the victim
of a theft whereby
some communists scanned-in one of my
bestselling Oracle books and gave it
away for free downloads in Russia and China.
The FBI Cybercrime unit told me that they have very
little control against those who abuse the web with criminal acts
and SOPA will help them to enforce US law against bad guys, anywhere
on the planet.
Many foreign content thieves do not
understand the concept of private ownership, because they are
communists. I one had an author submit a chapter to be for
publication which consisted entirely of cut-and-paste from other
people's work. When I confronted him, he denied all
culpability because he has copy-pasted
from approved sources in the Oracle documentation!
This fellow genuinely believed that internet property was free
for the taking.
